First published in Amsterdam in 1618, this is Guillaume Blaeu's famous map of the Continent. Panelled borders at each side show costumed figures from various parts of Asia - Syria, Arabia, Persia, China, Muscovy, Tartary and South East Asian Islands. Views along the top border are of Canton, Calicut, Goer, Damascus, Jerusalem, Ormus, Bantam, Aden and Macao - all important trading places at the time.
